Tan Holdings Football Club’s Chloe Salvosa is ahead in the Golden Boot race in the 2015 Dove Women’s Football League.
As of March 31, Salvosa has earned 15 goals to lead Kanoa FC’s Irish Pagarao and Marielle Gariguez, who have gained 10 and seven, respectively.
The Tan Holdings striker scored in eight of the team’s nine games, recording hat-tricks twice with the first one in their opening game on Feb. 7 against MP United. Salvosa’s three goals allowed Tan Holdings to force a draw against MP United.
Incidentally, Salvosa’s second hat-trick was also registered against MP United on March 21 with Tan Holdings this time cruising to a 5-0 victory. Salvosa then collected two goals each in three other games (against Kanoa, Independents FC, and Paire) and added three more versus Matansa, Shirley’s, and Kanoa.
Pagarao duplicated Salvosa’s two hat-tricks with the former getting her first in Kanoa’s 8-2 rout of Paire on March 3 and 4-2 win over Matansa on March 14. Pagarao’s four other goals were made against Independents (1), Matansa (2), and Tan Holdings (1).
Gariguez posted a hat-trick once during their 3-0 victory over Independents on March 24, bagged two goals in their 4-1 win over Matansa, and tallied one each versus MPU and Independents.
Meanwhile, four Shirley’s players are tied for fourth place with Jeraldine Castillo, Alexa Vergara, Diana Maniacop, and Mia Carreon having six apiece. There is also deadlock for fifth place with Shirley’s Diane Pablo and Tan Holdings’ Mary Kay Alferos, Renita Fleming, and Jennifer Perena posting five each.
Other players who have collected multiple goals are Shirley’s’ Marilou Gariguez (4) and Gabrielle Race (4), MP United’s Michelle Masga (4), Matansa’s Bernadette Horey (3), Shirley’s’ Negahr Rastguiy (3) and De Jana Muna (3), and MP United’s Jayda Mendoza (3) and Karleen Reyes (3).
